The 2020 SENSE.nano symposium was an exploration of sensing the body at all scales. From the level of cells, organs, and body systems to individuals and populations, this symposium, broken into three half-day webinars, highlighted the needs for new sensing technologies, showcased research and innovations, and presented the impact of these technologies.
Over a series of invited technical talks, panel discussions, presentations by MIT-launched startups, and a view into MIT research today with current graduate students, this event provided needs context and solution perspectives in the domains of sensing for the study of biology and for the care of humans in their environment.
IMMERSED: A seminar series by the MIT.nano Immersion Lab
The IMMERSED seminar series is an exploration into how immersive technology and new modalities for manipulating and understanding data are shaping innovations across science, engineering, and art. These events—a mixture of lectures, demonstrations, and tutorials—offer a deep dive into a capability or set of capabilities at the MIT.nano Immersion Lab and how they can be applied to various fields. These seminars and the technology demonstrated are often related to sensors and sensing, including motion capture technology that tracks your location in space and wireless sensors that chart physiological measurements.
Augmenting our natural senses
What could you do if you had 7 senses? 10 senses? More? What would you do with all of that information? How big would your brain need to be? How would you communicate what you feel?
SENSE.nano is MIT.nano's first Center of Excellence, focusing on nano-enabled sensors and sensing systems.
